Most brake fluid leaks, especially from vehicles of this age are caused from rusted through lines. Take a look under the car and look at the line on the axle, you will likely find a wet spot. If you can't locate the leak easily, fill the brake reservior and have someone pump the brakes to find the source. Another common source of leaks are wheel cylinders. If this is the case you will notice brake fluid on the bottom of the drum backing plate. You can remove the brake drums to confirm this.

I have 04 awd saturn vue my front driver and rear passenger brakes won't engage or something.


Make sure the master cylinder is full and that the vacuum line going to it is is secure wit no air leaks. If as you state the brakes not being applied only at the drivers front and passengers rear wheels, but the other two wheels are working fine you will either have a leaking/blocked master cylinder, leaking/blocked brake lines feeding each of those wheels, or a bad proportioning valve. To trouble shoot raise the bad wheel and crack open the bleeder valve, have an assistant apply the brakes if a nice clean steady stream of fluid comes out, MC is OK, and valve is OK, any bubbles of poor flow indicates leak in system. Very little flow bad MC or blocked lines/valve, etc.Do the same for the rear wheel and you should be able to determine the fault.

I have a 2011 Hyundai Sonata. While driving down the road, it felt like I had a flat. took it in and they said the rear driver wheel needed a new brake hose and new caliper. that didn't fix the problem....


Yes, they are. It is called a split diagonal system. One separate part is the passenger front and driver rear. The other separate system is the driver front and passenger rear. The reasoning behind it is that if a leak or problem develops in one system, the other will still operate brakes on the other system, and there will still be braking action on both sides of the vehicle.

Leaking brake fluid at rear passenger '92


Hi,
Most likely a brake caliper or line. Lines are fairly cheap, calipers cost about $75 a piece if you get them discount online. Novice mechanics can do either or both replacements. DOnt buy parts from a dealer, they are 40% higher than retail. A brake shop will run you in the range of $150 to replace the caliper and pads one one axle, about $300 on both rear (replace both is recommended). Mike

Brakes on rear passenger side it leaking brake fluid..what is the part call to get it fixed. my brother said it was the master cyclinder but now he believes it is like a brake wheel cyclinder


if you have drum brakes on the rear of the car and the leak is at the back of the car the part is called a wheel cylinder if the leak is coming from inside the brake drum.

Brake fluid is leaking from inside the rear drum break


Hi!!
Most likely the Wheel Cylinder seals are leaking, you can replace the Rear Wheel Cylinder for $12.99 or you can just replace the seals, sold as a kit for $2.20, at most auto parts stores. Here are pics of both.
